THE SIGN POST UP AHEAD

On your last day on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.
-Anonymous-
The New Year is coming , time for resolutions change and rebirth.
The most common is the elimination of bad habits and a commitment to get fit.
Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.
- Jim Rohn- 
Healthy diet and physical activity are the first two steps 
The difference between a short term habit and a long term goal is really,
 a matter of goal setting, writing them down and most importantly sticking to it. 
Life is like a card game; it's not so much the cards your delt but how you play them. 
Overnight success is a myth . Slow and steady wins the race.
Think smart not hard.
Coach Tony Blauer talks about reverse engineering a fight or an ambush 
to create a more accurate training model. This method is called science. 
If we reverse engineer our own life experience we are more likely to succeed
than hoping for a magic bullet or a first responder to sweep us from
 the arms of danger or failure. Fear of failure, success or even the unknown 
is the single greatest cause of failure, in life, love or self defense .

Fear is a normal human emotion. It is not in itself a killer. We can learn to be aware when fear grips us, and can train to operate through and in spite of our fear. If, on the other hand, we don’t understand that fear is normal and has to be controlled and overcome, it will paralyze us and stop us in our tracks. We will no longer think clearly or rationally. We prepare for it and control it; we never let it control us.

-Gen Colin Powell-

Knowing what you can and can't control allows focus on one task with laser precision and see it through rather than 'shotgun blasting' all the obstacles at once, leaving most unfinished.Along the way you'll sacrifice some things that in the end will seem insignificant compared to the achievement of your goal. In other words , you'll sacrifice little to achieve much.

The Haters

This year I learned a valuable lesson about all successful people,they have haters.
Having a growing number of haters means your doing something significantNo matter what not everyone is going to like you especially if you are authentic.

The only way to avoid pissing people off is to do nothing. My friend Allison is constantly 'Banning the snowflakes' on her FB page.
The future is a blank page, there are no secrets or guaranties  for success only hard work, preperation, dedication and the willingness to get back up seven times after failing six.

State of Grace

Theology describes perseverance as a continuing state of grace until death.
 
 Success is no accident it's hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all a love of what your doing or learning to do. 'Heart' is that extra something that separates the achiever from the rest, it's the passion and stamina that makes dreams reality despite adversity.
 
 
Spiderman has an indomitable will that gives him the determination to accomplish all his goals. He grew up with two very moral and righteous people who taught him to always do the right thing, and more importantly, to never give up. His Aunt May and Uncle Ben instilled the virtues of perseverance, determination, willpower, a moral compass, work ethic, and kindness. Spiderman is relentless in his pursuit of justice for all, and his alter ego, Peter Parker, is just as relentless in his goals of making his own way and succeeding both in school and life.
 
 
An occasional Team Fearless student, Connor Hood shares a lot of the same attributes as the web slinger. The day before his first indoor track meet Connor could hardly left his leg after a 'slip and fall'. We worked on a few stretches in an effort to regain some of his flexibility so he could still compete. HE DID IT !!!
 
 
The most important things in your life may never be seen they can only be felt by the heart. The sacrifice, the pain and the overcoming it even in the smallest acts is the secret to success and happiness.
 
Have passion for what you do. Pursue tirelessly your dreams because without a fighters heart your life will be like a sunless garden, full of dead flowers.
 
Train on ! See you in class, Join our journey........... 
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.

And so this is Christmas

  Christmas has always been a holiday celebrated carelessly.
 Pagans, Christians, Jews are swept away in the season’s festivities, 
few ever consider the celebration’s intrinsic meaning, history, or origins.



Named a saint in the 19th century,  Nicholas was born in Turkey in 270 CE and later was among the most senior bishops who created the New Testament. 
 He died in 345 CE on December 6th.  

     In 1087, a group of sailors who idolized Nicholas  gave each other gifts during a pageant they conducted annually on the anniversary of Nicholas’ death, December 6.

  The Nicholas cult spread and was adopted by German and Celtic pagans that worshiped  Woden  the father of Thor.  Woden had a long, white beard and rode a horse through the heavens one evening each Autumn.  After the 'merger'  he shed his Mediterranean appearance, grew a beard, mounted a flying horse, rescheduled his flight for December, and donned heavy winter clothing. 

  The Catholic Church adopted the Nicholas cult and taught that he did (and they should) distribute gifts on December 25th instead of December 6th.


In 1809, the novelist Washington Irving wrote a 'Knickerbocker History'
 The satire refers to the white bearded, flying-horse riding Saint Nicholas 
by his Dutch name, Santa Claus.

   Dr. Clement Moore, published a poem,“The night before Christmas" in 1822 portraying a Santa with eight reindeer who descended through chimneys.

In 1931, the Coca Cola Corporation contracted the Swedish commercial artist to create a coke-drinking Santa. modeled on his friend Lou Prentice, chosen for his cheerful, chubby face.  The corporation insisted that Santa’s suit be
 Coca Cola red.  And Santa was born – a blend of Christian crusader, 
pagan god, and commercial idol. 

Many who are excitedly preparing for their Christmas celebrations would prefer not knowing about the holiday’s real significance.  If they do know the history, they often object that their celebration has nothing to do with the holiday’s monstrous history and meaning.  “We are just having fun.”


Now ya know, dont believe everything you hear when it comes to LIFE, LOVE & MARTIAL ARTS or FITNESS for that matter , do your homework. 
Taking the easy road generally is just 'convenient truth' .


Your real friends know whats being said 
even when no one is talking.

I can only show you something real, 
I can't make you appreciate it.
Keep it real !!!

Saving a Starfish





I was doing a weighted walk on the beach this morning. 
No one on this island community wakes up at 5:30 am, apparently.

I was standing in the surf with All Time Lows' new CD, Future Hearts on the I pod.
Sweat dripped off me in the sunlight while a cool breeze tried to console my hot skin.

I looked to where the waves break on the resort beach and saw a beautiful starfish.
It had washed to shore and was beginning to dry in the sun.

How cool would it be on a coffee table !! 
Much to my surprise when I picked it up it was still alive,
 It had just become trapped in the waves and washed ashore.
I could let it dry out in the sun. A couple days and boy,
 would it look cool on that coffee table.

 I threw it back out onto the reef.




It's hard to believe its been nearly 5 years since my many surgeries for diverticulitis.
Following each surgery I suffered from memory loss from the pain medicine.
During this time I needed training partners that would talk me through
 each drill, kata, mitt sequence ect. Like the starfish I had washed ashore helpless.

We all at different times in all our lives face adversity.
A stronger opponent, the death of a parent, the 'tragic breakup',
the loss of a job or a large sum of money.



You can choose to see the curse or the gift.
 And this one choice will determine if your life
 is a success story or one big soap opera.

 -Jon Gordon-


Have you ever faced negative people before?
Wait — who am I kidding? Of course you have! I know I have.
Unless you live in a cocoon, all of us have encountered one negative person in our life.
Negative people are everywhere, in our workplace, in social circles, or our family.
The challenge with dealing with negative people is that they tend to be draining.
 No matter what you say, they always have a negative opinion to offer..
 When they have a problem, they prefer to complain, rather than work out a solution.



 He dropped out of grade school and was home schooled.
He ran a country store, went broke.
 It took 19 years to pay off all his bills, but he did pay them off.

 He had a law firm, but his partner ran off and left him with debts.
 He was married, but his marriage flopped.
 His wife came down with mental illness and paranoia.
 He had a son who was physically weak and died at a young age.

 He ran for political office four times,
 twice for the house and twice for the senate,and lost all four times.
Ultimately, he held office but was despised by half the country.

Satirists and newsmen derided him on an almost daily basis.
Most audiences felt his speeches were hum-drum.
 His classic speech was met with indifference.

Who was he? Abraham Lincoln.

Whether your the 'starfish or the beach walker your day will come
 if you DON'T QUIT !!!
